Quinnipiac Poll: President Obama Sits at 42% Approval Rating
According to the latest Quinnipiac University survey, Pres. Obama holds a 42 percent approval rating among voters in Pennsylvania, compared to 55 who disapprove.
Last April, Obama received a 40% approval rating against a 56% disapproval rating.
The President’s approval ratings, of course, split dramatically along party lines. Only 9 percent of Republicans approved of his performance, compared with 89 percent disapproval. The split among Democrats was 77-19, and 42-54 among independents.
Additionally, there was a rather large gender gap. Pres. Obama’s approval rating among women is a positive 51-46 while among men it’s a negative 33-64.
“President Barack Obama is unlikely to be much, if any, help to the Democratic candidates. His job approval numbers are close to his all-time low in Pennsylvania,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Poll.
This Quinnipiac survey was conducted from June 4th to June 15th. 970 Pennsylvania registered voters were interviewed through land lines and cell phones. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.2%.
